Grain Bowl

  • 1 cup quinoa or brown rice, or other whole grain
  • ½ bunch kale or other seasonal greens, chopped
  • 1 beet, grated
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • ¼ head cabbage, thinly sliced
  • ½ head cauliflower, riced
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro or parsley, choped
  • 2 tsp ginger, diced
  • 1 orange or other seasonal fruit, diced
  • ¼ cup pumpkin, sunflower, or chia seeds


  • 1 Tbsp tahini
  • 2 tsp soy sauce or liquid aminos
  • 2 tsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice, from ½ a lemon
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped or grated
  • ½ tsp ground cumin


  • Cook 1 cup of quinoa, brown rice, or other whole grain in 2 cups of water or stock until tender, about 15-30 minutes depending on which grain you use. Drain off any excess water. Cover and set aside.
  • While grains cook, in a small bowl combine 1 Tbsp tahini, 2 tsp soy sauce or liquid aminos, 2 tsp rice vinegar, 1 tsp maple syrup, the juice of half a lemon (about 1 Tbsp), a finely chopped clove of garlic, and ½ tsp ground cumin. Mix until everything is incorporated and set aside.
  • For this step, feel free to mix and match what fresh produce you like and can find. (This is a great way to use miscellaneous veggies in your fridge). You can add veggies in raw or lightly cook to take the raw bite off.
    In a large bowl, add ½ bunch of chopped kale, 1 grated beet, 1-2 grated carrots, ¼ head thinly sliced cabbage, ½ head riced cauliflower, ¼ cup fresh cilantro or parsley, 2 tsp diced ginger, 1 chopped orange or other fruit, and ¼ cup pumpkin, sunflower, or chia seeds.
  • Add cooked grains and sauce to veggies and toss to combine. Seasonal to taste with salt.


This is a super flexible recipe and the ingredients listed are just suggestions. Feel free to omit or substitute any of the fresh produce based on your taste and what you can find.
